Hope for the Restless, Hurting Heart
"Shame on you." Weve all heard those words and felt the sting in our souls. We might try hard to earn love and acceptance for a while, but eventually we find ourselves exhausted, anxious, despaired. Shame can motivate us to try harder but it never sets us free. It is, in short, a lie that steals real peace and hides true joy. Now Alan D. Wright shares in a refreshing new way how to let the grace and power of Jesus Christ transform you and unlock the key to an entirely new way of living and loving. While he experienced this liberation for himself, as a pastor he has also guided countless others to the same place of freedom. Heres how to give up your tireless quest for the approval of others, find rest in Gods love, and turn the exhortation upside down: where the shame comes off you…for good!

With a brilliant combination of humor, biblical wisdom, and practical guidance, pastor Alan Wright invites you to get grounded in Gods grace. Its the only Truth powerful enough to banish the lie. And its the only way you can receive the life you struggle so hard for, but never attain. A place of contentment and love is waiting for youif you dare accept the gift.
Dont wait. Get the shame off youfor good!
Story Behind the Book
"When I was in the fourth grade, we had a family meeting at which my dad announced that he wouldnt be living at home anymore. Thus ended my happy world. I launched into a life of superlative success. But my secret master motivation was not joy, but fear. Some years ago I began a ruthless self inventory that uncovered the various manifestations of shame in my life. I found that it was not as powerful as I once thought and that I could change by the healing grace of Jesus Christ. Over the years, I developed a passion for telling people how they could release their shame to Christ and be healed by His love and grace." Alan D. Wright

MariaNew JerseyAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Must read!April 11, 2014MariaNew JerseyAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is my first review of any book ever. I hope that I can give you a clear and brief understand of how wonderful it is. I truly believe that it is life changing no matter what stage or place you are in your journey with God.
I have been a Christian for a little over 20 years and I feel that for the first time I am beginning to truly understand what it means to follow Jesus. To say that this is a freeing experience is putting it mildly.
Through the pages of this study God has been gently leading me into the land of promise. A place that I feel He has been leading me into for the last several years. I feel that Christ is inviting me to rest - - to stop striving, with myself and with others. I am learning more and more that God is very much in control and I do not have to be. I was carrying a load that was never meant for me to carry and in the process I was crumbling under its weight.
I fell in love with Jesus because of His most amazing Grace_I took a "religious detour" while still in love with Him_in His abundant grace and mercy He is leading me into the freedom that He so costly purchased for me and I am learning to live out of the overflow of his grace and mercy in my life.
I hope that this encourages you to buy this book and that you will then pass it along to others.
Under His Grace

Becky3 Stars Out Of 5June 24, 2010BeckyI enjoyed this book for the most part. It has some very good advice. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because to me it was a bit charasmatic for my taste. Like on page 228 where he explains a special speaker slapped him in the stomach and said, "Filled" and then he fell to the ground laughing, crying and shaking. He explains that he laid up front like that for an hour while the Evangelist finished his service. There were a few other things mentioned along this line. No offense, but just not my cup of tea.
Chris5 Stars Out Of 5May 29, 2010ChrisThe second most powerful book I have ever read. The only book more Powerful is the Bible.It equips one to get past the things (guilt) that have weighed them down.Since reading this a little over a year ago. Originally named " Shame Off You" I have given away my personal copy which was given to me, purchased a few more copies and passed them on. Even if you were like me and had it all worked out, on the path and living right, you may just find things (stuff) that are holding down and back without even knowing it!Chris
